bernanke called the feds' intervention confirmation that president obama's policies have not worked. we should be creating wealth romney said in a statement, not printing dollars. republicans also fear that bernanke may have timed this effort to increase highing as -- hiring as an election-year gift to the president. bernanke rejected that notion saying the timing was related to a clearly stag significant economy, not politics. >> the fed might not be done yet. bernanke left open the possibility the fed could take more steps to encourage borrowing and financial risk taking. >>> it is 6:15. howard is here with another stellar forecast. >> it's going to be a great weekend. bluemont has their big fair going on. the mystics have their big game sunday. >> against liberty. >> let's talk weather. we have a nice morning out there now once again. a great week. will finish great. and even right through the weekend we'll keep some nice weather around. your bus stop forecast, a couple of patches of fog. that's about the big issue this morning. otherwise partly cloudy, a mix of sun and clouds out th

as the notifications have taken place. we're not sure if president obama will address this on camera or not. >>> christiane amanpour, by my side. just back from the region. what do we know about the film and the film make center. >> not a huge amount. he's been described as a california real estate. he describes himself as an israeli. he's remainingng defiant, sayin islam is a cancer. and saying this was a provocative film to show mohammed is a fraud. and clearly the film showed him as a womanizer, a pedophile, a thug, and generally denigrating islam. there's freedom of expression in this country. there's also 100-year law by the united states supreme court, which means you can't cry fire in a crowded theater. now, one has to figure out the extremists in this country and the extremists out there, who are using this and whipping up hatred. >> you covered the protests in the arab spring. what we're seeing is the consequences of more freedom in the middle east. >> more freedom. i've spoken to the prime ministers of egypt and the new leader of libya. they say they want good relations with the u

. he urged speaker boehner to abandon the grand bargain talks with president obama. "the new york times" reported in 2011, "ryan appealed to representative cantor to cut off negotiations between the speaker and the white house because he didn't feel the terms of the emerging agreement adhered strictly enough to his conservative principles and the deal might politically benefit president obama." so, it is not a secret that the ryan budget both hurts the middle class and does nothing for deficit reduction. the only people who would benefit are the very wealthy, and god bless them. they're doing well in america, but as recent statistics just showed, they're the only people gaining income. and one other thing i'd like to add about mr. ryan here: he seems like a nice man, nice family, but his recent speeches have just been so revealing, and he did the same thing yesterday once again showing he has learned nothing from the mistakes he's made in the last few weeks. when it comes to the big debates facing our country, paul ryan either has an extremely poor memory or has a tendency to play fast

. this is the mechanism that mr. obama's health care plan has for controlling costs. and really what it is it's 15 appointed bureaucrats, each making $165,000 a year work no congressional oversight, whose only purpose is to reduce medicare spending. so if the medicare budget goes up too much and is over the limit, these guys in washington are going to decide what to cut. they're going to decide if, you know, you deserve a p.s.a. prostate test or a mammogram or a colonoscopy. they're going to decide that they may not pay for that. i mean, if we don't act, this board could begin making these kinds of decisions as soon as 2015. and denial of payment for care is going to really lead to denial of care for our patients and our seniors. i don't really think it's fair for the washington bureaucrats who know nothing about the patient to be making decisions. i'm used to taking care of patients, sometimes you have to make some difficult decisions. but those decisions have been made between, you know, the physician, the patient and the family. not some bureaucrat in washington who doesn't know the patient, ca

. president obama seems to have pulled ahead by about five points in the latest polls. some of that has helped seemingly to change the trajectory of the race. earlier this month governor tommy thompson, the republican seemed to have the momentum and at this point his democratic rival, representative tammy baldwin, seems to be within the margin of error or a little ahead. >> host: why is that? >> guest: my best guest is that the baldwin surge, if you want to call it that correspond with president obama getting some distance from governor romney. . . she is one of several members of congress trying to run statewide, so she's going to try to define herself in a positive way and he is going to define her negatively. >> that debate will be live from wisconsin. we will broadcast from c-span 9 p.m.. tommy thompson and tammy baldwin in their debate. >>> september 11th is a day that changed my life forever and going to go through a power point presentation that is going to outline the accounts of the attack and the things that transpired that day. it gets pretty intense. a lot of things happen very qui

the united states was late? >> obama, all of your government, it was very late. >> reporter: so all of this is because the response was late? but there was little time for interviews. we should turn around here. the police are charging. >> you see what happened, what -- just -- the egyptian government is doing with the egyptian people because -- because of the americans. >> reporter: there were demonstrations today in nearly 40 cities across the region and beyond. but as bad as it looks, the demonstrations were generally small. but in what will have implications for security worldwide, the extremists have found a weak spot to attack a super power they believe is responsible for an offense against islam. and radicals, brian, are still looking for other soft targets. today, they attacked a u.n. outpost here in egypt, and several american chain restaurants in the region. brian? >> interesting to watch this throughout the weekend, richard engel in cairo, thank you, and we're getting a first look at what happened inside the u.s. consulate in libya, the damage from the attack that killed
